Kids Night Out
Beginning in fall 2007 with the women's soccer and softball teams, Kids Night Out has played an important role in connecting college varsity athletes and kids from the community, as well as promoting activity, health, and wellness. Originally hosting 30-50 kids, Kids Night Out has grown to serve 100-120 kids in the community per event.
Offered once a month, kids from kindergarten - 8th grade can join college athletes in the Beloit College sports center for a Friday evening of activity. Kids have the chance to swim, play kickball, watch a movie, play basketball, and hang-out with peers, while parents can have the evening off. Kids Night Out prides itself on being an affordable opportunity for community members, with a fee of $10 per kid, which goes towards supporting the athletic teams involved.
Kids Night Out events for 2017-18 are September 8, October 6, November 10, December 8, January 26, February 23, March 23, and April 27.
